The Dunleath Neighborhood is near downtown Greensboro just off Summit Avenue, Yanceyville Street, and Bessemer Avenue. 

Transportation & Parking

All neighborhood streets will remain open throughout the event and will be shared by cars, bicycles, and pedestrians. So please use caution when driving, biking, or walking. Event parking is available at Swann Middle School and at the Women’s Resource Center. Please use these areas as there is very limited street parking available throughout the neighborhood.  Drivers are asked to please be patient with foot traffic and bicyclists, and to obey all traffic laws and signage. If you’d like to see as many performances as possible, it would be a good idea to bring a bike.

What To Bring

  • Bring a chair or a blanket. There will be no chairs available at the event.

  • We will be collecting canned goods for the Triad Health Project food pantry. Collection sites will be located throughout the neighborhood. Be part of the community good will and bring something to donate.

  • Leashed dogs are welcome at this event. Please clean up after them as needed.

  • The only cash you’ll need is for what you choose to spend on food, t-shirts, or tipping the performers to show your appreciation of their generosity.

  • Bring the kids. There’ll be fun stuff and activities for them, too.

  • An umbrella will be helpful in the sun and in the event of rain.
